The three central themes of Europa Nostra:

Celebrating the best of European cultural heritage

Each year, EN rewards the best of cultural heritage achievements. Through the European Union Prize for Cultural Heritage / Europa Nostra Awards, it celebrates excellence and dedication by architects, craftsmen, volunteers, schools, local communities, heritage owners and media. Through the power of their example it stimulates creativity and innovation.

Campaigning in favour of Heritage at risk

Europa Nostra campaigns against the many threats to Europe’s cultural heritage. When monuments or sites are in danger by uncontrolled development, environmental change, neglect or conflict, EN raises its voice. It seeks to facilitate cooperation and solidarity between heritage organisations and activists.


Join EN in making cultural heritage a European priority. Europa Nostra is your connection to the European Union, the Council of Europe and UNESCO.
